This is like the Portrait of Dorian Grey in reverse. Trump is in horrific shape, compared to the video of him from five years back. Take a look.

He’s barely functional. Presidents age in office, that’s a given. It’s a difficult job, when one does it. In Trump’s case, he’s collapsing before our eyes and this is with dodging all his responsibilities and watching TV. Business Insider:
- President Donald Trump’s staffers are concerned about his mental capabilities, an anonymous senior administration official wrote in a book set to be released this month.
- According to The Washington Post, the author of “A Warning” wrote that Trump “stumbles, slurs, gets confused, is easily irritated, and has trouble synthesizing information, not occasionally but with regularity.”
- “I am not qualified to diagnose the president’s mental acuity,” they wrote, according to The Post. “All I can tell you is that normal people who spend any time with Donald Trump are uncomfortable by what they witness.”
From here to Tulsa, to an unmasked, undistanced audience, during a pandemic. What could possibly go wrong?
